Gua Sha is a healing massage technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine that can be used to lift, tone and tighten skin, increase the efficacy of your skincare, and for your skin to look refreshed and glowy.
The technique stems from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and involves the use of a skincare tool (like this one!) with a flat edge that can be used to press-stroke or scrape lubricated skin in one direction. This, according to the Chinese, moves qi (气) or energy around the body. In allopathic medical terms, this translates into improving circulation which releases stagnant blood and toxins. This movement allows for more blood and nutrient flow to stagnant areas, allowing for healing and rejuvenating tired skin.
Amethyst is commonly prescribed by energy healers to help soothe anxiety and to bring peace and calm. It helps the user to feel safe and protected. When used to stimulate your inner intuition and wisdom, it also helps with releasing negative attachments. Amethyst can be a powerful addition to your healing energy rituals.
